There have been a number of burglaries and attempted burglaries over the past few days in the area – so far at least two successful break-ins on our street and at least one attempted break in, judging by the damage to the front door.

They have been brazen attempts to bash in the front door and sneaky entrance through the back door. Also break-ins on Coppermill and Waterside are reported. Take care and look out for your neighbours please, especially if you have a ‘ginnell’ (gap between houses).

The ‘neighbourhood policing team” number is 020 8721 2035.

Dial 111 to report suspicious behaviour but obviously 999 if you see anything actively occurring. If you don’t feel safe at any time please give anyone on the mobile list a call or knock on a neighbours door, any time day or night we’re all happy to look out for each other.
